Host datathons and hackathons using real data, securely
Data has the power to boost innovation and generate new solutions to the world’s problems. However, datasets are often locked away in silos or unable to be shared. Senate allows organizations to securely combine anonymized datasets to safely host data innovation events like Datathons or Hackathons with external data talent..
Teams can analyze data in a secure cloud analytics environment to solve problems using real company data. Datasets can also be combined to create solutions for social good.
Datathons and Hackathons in Action
Melbourne Business School partnered with Data Republic to run the Melbourne Business Analytics Datathon in 2017 and 2018. The datathons gave participating teams access to powerful tools and datasets to develop and compete on analytics solutions which demonstrate the power of data to transform decision making for public and private sector problems.
In 2018 more than 250 competitors in 50 teams competed to come up with creative solutions to health challenges, analysing government and corporate data on Data Republic’s Senate platform for a chance at the $25,000 prize money.
Datathon finalist teams pitched their solutions at the finale of MBS’s ‘Melbourne Business Analytics Conference’ in front of senior executives and demonstrated what is truly possible through advanced analytics to solve a real problem that could impact on the lives of all Australians.
“The Datathon epitomises our vision to ‘Transform decision making through business analytics’. By partnering with the Victorian Government and world-class brands such as SAS, AWS and Data Republic, we were able to attract Australia’s top analytics talent to develop innovative solutions very real problems by applying analytics to never-before-combined disparate data sets.”
